Tips & Expert Advice
When purchasing a set of bases for your baseball or softball team, make sure to find a set with weather-proof materials to help your bases stand up to the inclement weather conditions, such as erratic rain and storms, extreme heat and overnight frosts. Also be sure your bases are made with a high-density foam core in order to stand up to the impact of rubber and metal cleats.
In order to guarantee the safety of your players when running full-speed into first base, be sure to purchase a double first base that compresses on impact so no one trips or accidentally collides with the opposing team. To promote the safety of base runners sliding into home plate, purchase a plate with a waffle rubber bottom, beveled edges and/or metal anchors to ensure it stays securely in place while also deterring ankle and hand injuries.
